Why Sell into Albania?

Ecommerce remains relatively uncommon in Albania and is offered by a limited number of domestic merchants. Albania is a predominately cash economy, but the use of credit cards is growing and they can be used in major hotels, grocery stores, restaurants, and department stores. Cross border online shopping remains in the early stages due to the low use of credit cards, low purchasing power, and the high cost of shipping.

Albania is one of the only countries in Europe that doesn’t have a neutral Internet Exchange Point. There are ongoing government efforts to improve broadband availability and access conditions throughout Albania. However, fixed line and broadband penetration remains low by international standards. As mobile network infrastructure improves, consumers continue to prefer this platform for voice and data services, and as a result the mobile sector is anticipated to grow.
